A SPEEDY AND TALENTED RIGHT WINGER, MARK RECCHI FINISHED AT THE TOP OF THE TEAM’S SCORING LIST IN EACH OF HIS SEASONS IN MONTREAL.

With his speed and his quick and accurate wrist shot, right-winger Mark Recchi brought Canadiens fans to their feet at the Forum and the Molson Centre on countless occasions during his stay with Montreal.

Drafted 67th overall by Pittsburgh, he spent six seasons with the Penguins and won a Stanley Cup alongside Mario Lemieux in 1990-91. Traded to Philadelphia the following year, he spent the next four seasons with the Flyers.

He was acquired by the Canadiens on February 9, 1995, along with a third round pick, in exchange for Eric Desjardins, Gilbert Dionne and John LeClair.

In his first year in Montreal, Recchi recorded 43 points in 39 games during a lockout-shortened season. Over the next three seasons, he missed only one game and tallied 94 goals and 138 assists while cementing his role as one of the team’s key players. He finished among the top three in team scoring in each of his seasons in Montreal.

The team struggled, though, and major personnel changes were necessary to spark a renewal for the franchise. As a result, on March 10, 1999, shortly before the end of yet another trying season, Recchi was dealt back to Philadelphia in a trade that brought Dainius Zubrus to Montreal.

In 346 games with the Habs, Recchi had 120 goals and 202 assists for 322 points. He added 24 points in 21 playoff games.

After five more seasons with the Flyers, he returned to Pittsburgh before winning his second Stanley Cup in 2006 with the Carolina Hurricanes. Back again with the Penguins, he was picked up on waivers by Atlanta and finished the 2007-08 season with the Thrashers. In the summer of 2008, Recchi signed on with the Tampa Bay Lightning as a free agent.

The speedy forward appeared in seven All-Star Games over the course of his career, including 1997 when he represented the Canadiens and was named MVP of the game after scoring a hat trick. He recorded three 100-point seasons and joined the 500-goal club in January 2007.
